Team Flag Football

TEAM FLAG REGISTRATION

New! Eight teams will be allowed for the 3rd/4th grade league, eight teams for the 5th & 6th league & eight teams for the 7th & 8th grade leagues.   All teams need to have a minimum of 7 players.  5 players play at a time but you must have 5 every day so that you don't have to forfeit a game.  To form a team, gather your seven and select one of the parents to be the "parent coordinator" of the team. This person should contact Jeff Erdmann at jeff.erdmann@district196.org to share first & last names of all 7 players.  After sharing this information with Coach Erdmann, have all team members register on Athletechs.  When all 7 are registered, Coach Erdmann will contact the "parent coordinator" to verify the team is registered and ask for the team color you would like from those not taken and your team name.   The cost per participant is $100.  The increased cost covers the extra officials for the games.  The league features a 7 game regular season schedule.  Teams will then be seeded for the playoff season that covers the last 3 dates.

Steps to Form a Team

1) Gather your 7+ players and select a "parent coordinator".

2) "Parent Coordinator" emails Coach Erdmann with the first and last names of the players and then instructs all team members to register on Athletechs  ( jeff.erdmann@district196.org )

3) Once all players are registered - Coach Erdmann will verify team creation and ask the team to "claim" the color they want.  Each team will be a different color/combination so no issues arise when playing.  Teams can also select a team name.

Gold; Red; Black; Carolina Blue; Green; Navy; Gray; White; Purple

4) A free training session will be offered by Coach Erdmann for all teams on Sunday May 21 at the RHS Practice Fields.  3rd/4th grade teams- 3-4:00; 5th/6th & 7th/8th grade teams from 4-5:00.  This session will introduce offensive and defensive concepts to all teams so that you can customize your playbook and perfect your plays before the first game!

Teams are required to have standardized tops for all players.  There must be a number on the front of the jersey/t-shirt to allow for easier communication on the part of defenses.

Dates for Flag :  Tuesdays/Thursdays  - Teams can practice whenever they want.  Teams will be allowed to wear wristbands to help communicate plays on the offensive side of the ball.  Make your own plays and wristbands!!!   Each team will designate a player that will serve as the coach for that game.  

June 13, 15, 20, 22 July 6, 11, 13, 18, 20, 25, (27th will be a make-up day in case we have a rain out in post-season play)

3rd&4th Grade Teams will play from 8:30-9:15am.  5th & 6th Grade team will play from 11:15-noon.  7th & 8th grade teams may be at any time between 8:30-Noon  Once numbers of participants are deteremined for TEAM FLAG, a schedule of times will be provided by July 1.

Team T's and Wristbands can be purchased from Swag Shop in March/April.  Jerseys need Team Name and # on the front.

Individual Flag Football

INDIVIDUAL FLAG REGISTRATION

Each day all registered boys & girls will be randomly placed on teams in their grades.

We will then play 2 flag football games of 25 minutes each!  Kids work on coordination, throwing, catching, defending, and pass coverage skills while having all kinds of FUN!!!  We are interested in providing a fun environment where all participants play equally and develop a passion for football!

Kids entering 1st & 2nd Grade will use a soft football for a safer situation and to allow the kids greater success.  An RHS Irish Football Player serves as All-Time QB for each game to help with distributing the ball to all participants.

Grades 1-2 will play either 9:15-10:15 (First Shift) or 10:15-11:15am (Second Shift)  Players will be assigned to 2nd shift unless you email Coach Erdmann and request the first shift.  Once the 25 spots for the first shift are filled, all will be placed in the second shift.  First shift spots are for families that will have a 3rd/4th grader participating in Team Flag from 8:30-9:15.

Grades 3-4 will play from 9:15-10:15am

Grades 5-6 will play from 10:15-11:15am
